ew footage casts doubt on the decision to award Liverpool penalty vs Man United

The decision to award Liverpool a late penalty against Manchester United has been questioned by fans and pundits alike as new footage emerges which appears to show that the contact between Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harvey Elliott didn’t happen until the latter was already on his way down.

Mohamed Salah converted the spot-kick to rescue a point for the Reds at Old Trafford after Bruno Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo scored two wonderful goals to cancel out Luis Diaz’s first-half opener. This goal meant the Egyptian became the highest-scoring opposition player against Manchester United in the Premier League with 11 goals.The point left Jurgen Klopp’s men behind Arsenal in the Premier League title race as the Gunners boast the superior goal difference. They are, however, level on points with their title rivals with seven games to go after salvaging the late draw against their arch-rivals. However, many have now cast doubt over whether Liverpool should have even been handed the opportunity to equalise from 12 yards.

Heading into the final part of the match and needing a goal, Klopp turned to his trusted super-sub this season, Elliott, who came on to replace a misfiring Darwin Nunez. The youngster has managed to have an impact in many games when coming off the bench, and the encounter at Old Trafford was no different.

Linking up with Salah on the right-hand side of the Red Devils’ penalty area, the 21-year-old went down under the challenge from Wan-Bissaka, who was playing in an unnatural left-back role. The defender launched himself into the tackle – always a risk inside the penalty area – but a new angle has revealed that his foot didn’t make contact with the Liverpool ace until he was already on the way down.

Elliott appeared to already be falling over before his right boot got stuck under the flailing leg of Wan-Bissaka. It’s not only United fans that can feel hard done by with the decision, as Arsenal and Manchester City could also live to rue the point gained by their title rivals. Watch the footage below:
